Self-Management Coping Strategies Can Mean Better Outcomes for Cancer Patients

How well patients cope with their cancer treatments can have a great impact on their outcomes. After chemotherapy treatments, patients can sometimes experience such symptoms as fatigue, nausea, vomiting and cognitive issues like not being to think clearly or having memory problems. But the experts at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center – James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute share that some of these issues can be managed quite well with behavioral self-management to help cope with treatment effects. And managing those coping mechanisms can lead to better, more positive outcomes.
